The problem won’t be solved unless you unload the storage boxes that are full of items to put away. Choose a day of the week when you know you will have time to tackle the job, and make doing so a habit rather than something you have to think about doing.
Put storage containers preferable in an outdoor storage building
Earlier when you cast a critical eye over rooms in your home identifying clutter-zones, you will have discovered precisely where added storage containers are needed. For instance, if you usually dump keys, gloves, scarves, and other goods you take in and out of the house regularly on a table in the hallway, that’s the place you need a container and hooks.
Likewise, if you like to keep snack foods within reach of your chair in the lounge, along with magazines and other things you use when sat there, storage containers are required in the area. A magazine rack and wicker basket may do the trick.
